Author Charlotte Watson Sherman discusses her latest picture book, the story of a little girl who loves the water and learns that she can do her part to protect the environment.

“I wrote Mermaid Kenzie: Protector of the Deeps to help show young (and older) readers we can all pitch in to protect the beauty of our oceans and marine life,” said Sherman. After researching environmentalism and seeing the effects of pollution, Sherman was inspired to come up with a creative solution to help protect sea life. When discussing these solutions, Sherman hoped that, “young readers understand that all of us who love the sea and marine life can do our part to help protect our oceans, and we can start small, at home, in our bedrooms and kitchens, by reducing our use of plastic, re-using toys and other items we already have, and sharing or exchanging toys with others.”
